Our Values

Quixote’s Cove and Satori Center for the Arts creates spaces that allow for diverse stories and narratives to be shared and appreciated.

To this end, we value:

Diversity
Diversity is understanding that there are multiple ways of knowing, being, and doing. It encompassess an inclusive stance that accepts and respects differences. Diversity can be understood through different means, including but not limited to: language, race, caste, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities, religious and political beliefs.

Imagination 
Imagination is the exploration of possibilities. It is free from the restriction of how things were, are, or need to be. Imagination works with our understanding of diversity and responsibility to ensure accountability. 

Accountability
Accountability is the understanding of responsibilities combined with the ability to act, make decisions, and respond to them. It requires an awareness of the conditions and structures that shapes our freedoms and actions. It compels one to act and respond independently to different scenarios with an understanding of potential consequences.

 

 

 

Established in 2008, Quixote’s Cove (QC) was conceived as a space to encounter ideas, stories, and books. Setup as a bookshop and literary space in a building dating back to the 1930s, our first space was a small and cozy place for people interested in art, literature and politics to gather and share ideas, engage in critical discourse, and free expression. Shaped by Nepal's political scenario - the second people's movement leading to the establishment of the first Constitutent Assembly and the movement towards federalism after the abolition of the monarchy - we provided a forum for writers and intellectuals from a diverse range of political backgrounds to share their views and perspectives on the ideas and forces that were shaping Nepal.

In 2010, QC hosted the first ever poetry slam in Nepal and supported the establishment of the Word Warriors, Nepal's first spoken word poetry collective. In 2011, it hosted a one off international literature festival, the Kathmandu Literary Jatra which subsequently led to our first foray into publishing through La.Lit, a literary magazine in 2012. In 2012, we partnered with the Philidelphia Mural Arts Program, the Kathmandu Univeristy Department of Art and Design, and the U. S. Embassy to host Rainbow City, a program in which we painted and setup Nepal’s first modern community mural. Since 2013, QC and subsequently its sister company, Satori Center for the Arts, has been managing the U. S. Embassy’s Book Bus program. We have been operating two mobile libraries that service various communities across Nepal.

Since the establishment of Satori Center for the Arts in 2016, Quixote’s Cove has focused on providing editorial services, content creation, and publishing. Satori now handles all programmatic functions and projects, including the U. S. Embassy’s Book Bus and Word Warriors, which were previously handled by QC.

In all its endeavours, QC produces content that challenges convention and encourages imagination. It provides the best editorial services in the region to support the creation of content that is necessary and valuable.

 

 

Established in 2016, Satori Center for the Arts (Satori) was setup as a not-for-profit sister company for Quixote's Cove (QC). It was established to manage the various programs and projects that were previously being run through Quixote's Cove. The decision to setup a separate company was to allow for a sepration of organizatonal focus. Since then, QC has focused on providing editorial services, content creation, and publishing. Satori is focused on managing the various programs that were previously being overseen by QC. This has allowed for Satori to establish itself as an organization that is dedicated to conceiving and running programs dedicated to education, art, and literature. 

Currently, Satori manages the U. S. Embassy's Book Bus program and hosts the Word Warriors spoken word collective. It is working in partnership with Tahnani Dapha Khalah, a traditional music group based in Kirtipur, to give continuity to its musical practice through its Folk Lok program. It also organizes the Innovation in Education Fair along with a number of different educational workshops that utilize progressive and critical pedagogy for students and teachers.

 

 

We are a group of poets and educators leading the spoken word movement in Nepal. We write, perform and facilitate spoken word poetry workshops, organize events and implement programs around poetry, literature and poetry-based education across the country. We use poetry as our tool to provide creative outlets, voice marginalized stories and build communities of care and learning. 

The history of Word Warriors (WW) is closely tied to our mentor, partner and parent organization Quixote’s Cove (QC) bookshop. In December 2010, the perception of poetry changed for many youths, when the bookshop, in collaboration with the U.S. Embassy, organized QC Awards 2010: Voice Your Words, the first ever slam poetry event in Nepal.

A few Nepali poets and some keen participants from the slam poetry workshop and competition then decided to give continuity to this art form they had fallen in love with, and in the coordination of QC, formed the Word Warriors, Nepal’s first spoken word poetry group.

We started out by performing at various literary and art events, at local cafes and bars, and soon began organizing our own events and conducting workshops -- which was yet another step for our budding group.Over the years we’ve been trained under international spoken word artists. Many new members have joined us. We have conducted workshops at various schools in different parts of Nepal, organized inter-school slam poetry competitions in and outside Kathmandu, participated in street demonstrations and performed at national literary gatherings. We have taken a step further to spread spoken word poetry and create a platform for expression through several of our programs, which range from monthly open-mic events to in-school workshops and long-term projects working with members of marginalized communities to bring out their voices and stories.

As WW is not a registered organization, it has Satori as its financial and operational management partner organization, helping WW in its financial proceedings and legal records. 

 

 

Safu, which means books in Nepal Bhasa, is the publishing imprint for Quixote's Cove. As a small independent publisher, we work with writers, poets, illustrators, artists, editors, and translators to produce books that capture diverse voices and experiences that might otherwise not find a home within Nepal's mainstream publishing industry. We are a multi-lingual publisher that actively seeks to represent the different languages spoken in Nepal.

 

 

The U. S. Embassy's Book Bus is one of the nine American corners run by the American Library. It is sponsored by the American Embassy in Kathmandu and is managed by Satori Center for the Arts. Since November 2013, the Book Bus has travelled over 41,000 kilometres in Nepal and has visited over 550 schools, colleges, and community centers and directly worked with over 280,000 people.

The Book Bus is equipped with books, laptops, ipads, projectors, sound systems, internet connectivity, art supplies and moving exhibitions. Along with a librarian and driver, two to four educators travel with the bus to conduct workshops for students and teachers.
